Bible codes - Torah secrets after 20 years research, as seen on History Channel

The codes in the Bible (Torah) expand the mind and bring hope. The lecturer has been part of the inner circle of codes researchers in Israel for over 20 years, and has appeared on History Channel and other documentaries. Some codes are like a signature of the Bible's Author. Others signal an era of world peace, centered around the site of the Holy Temple. That is the very site which our balcony overlooks. Still other codes reflect historical and current events. Learn how the Bible/Torah is compared to thousands of other texts and no text has ever been found which remotely compares. "Virtual reality" is a play on words, not an actual part of the experience, and yet the goal is to change one's view of reality for the better. Gasps of wonder and hard questions are equally welcomed. In English normally, but Hebrew groups can be accommodated. There is nothing like face to face communication. I may also discuss some intriguing unpublished aspects.
